Pulse of the Planet: How we track and understand global, national and regional climate conditions at Asheville’s National Centers for Environmental Information.
This presentation will cover climate monitoring activities at Asheville’s National Centers for Environmental Information in Asheville, the world’s largest repository of weather and climate information. We will touch on the state of the global climate system, and what and how we measure, but will focus on observed and expected changes in our region, including how climate change is or isn’t related to changes in certain types of extreme weather. We will end with a story.
